My DS has been potty trained for about a year, still has a few accidents But he has never taken himself to toilet or pull his own trousers down, and WILL NOT hold his own widgy!! He will be starting school next year and I am not sure how to get him to do this?? any ideas
Yes I would rather he went with DH but he prefers me to take him, probably made a rod for my own back!! The ping pong ball sounds like a good idea though, think i will try that one!! I'm sure he'd enjoy that game And tried the sitting down, but again he never holds his widgy down so ends up soaked!
I think its just laziness, but he was a bit of a late developer, didn't walk till after he was 2 and his talking isn't fantastic but am getting extra help with this
He will get there, course he will, but I'm sure the sooner the better for you esp with school approaching.
You can buy ready painted ping pong balls in the nappy section in Sainsburys but why waste money. Buy your owna nd paint them with felt tips together.
Have you bought potty / toilet training books? let him see pics of other boys doing it.
I'd work on getting him to hang out with daddy in the bathroom.
If he's standing at loo, as well as the ping pongs, home about putting a poster up on wall around loo, making it a nice place for him to be that he doesn't mind hanging out in.
If laziness is an issue, and it so often is with toilet training, I'd go for the treat thing. Amazing how the thought of an iced gem or the like will spur a person into doing something they didn't want to do a moment ago!
My DD used to love to wee for what she believed was a bit of chocolate (but it was actually half a dried prune each time!!!) <evil cackle>
